Friends of CRY Club (FOCC) organized the 8th edition of its annual CRYwalk for children on 29 March, which saw a good turnout of participants, including very young children. Two separate CRYwalks were held, in Salmiya and Abu Halifa, on the same day.
Among the participating children, three were under 3 years of age. There were also many first-time participants who joined-in after learning about the walk on the spot.
